Strictly Come Dancing's Kevin Clifton Reveals He Nearly Backtracked On Decision To Quit
Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Kevin Clifton has revealed he nearly U-turned on his decision to quit the BBC ballroom show. The dancer quit after seven years on the pro line-up back in March – just before the pandemic locked down the UK – explaining he’d been offered his dream role in a new production of Strictly Ballroom The Musical. However, the stage show was later pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak.In an interview with The Sun, Kevin admitted he’d experienced second thoughts about leaving Strictly, saying: “There were a couple of conversations about it, like, is it worth talking about it?“But then I thought, I’ve just made this big announcement. I don’t want to look like an idiot.“I like doing different things and I don’t want to get in a moment where I’m doing the same thing for the sake of it because it’s perceived to be successful.”However, Kevin said he has not ruled out the possibility of returning to the Strictly ballroom in the future.He continued: “When I was having the conversations with Strictly about when is the right time for me to make this decision, I am thinking about it this year but maybe not, maybe in another year or two, I don’t know.“We’re having a constant conversation, and at the moment I feel I’ve pretty much done everything there is to do on the show.”Kevin was one of two pros to announce they would not be taking part in Strictly this year, with AJ Pritchard also exiting the show.♥️ pic.twitter.com/2IITQIPYhC— Kevin Clifton (@keviclifton) March 6, 2020It has since been revealed that four of the remaining dancers will not receive a celebrity partner for the upcoming series, due to there being a reduced number of stars on the line-up because of the pandemic. Neil Jones, Graziano Di Prima, Nadiya Bychkova and Nancy Xu will all sit out the competition, but will still appear in the group routines, which were filmed over the summer after the pro dancers isolated together in a hotel. Strictly Come Dancing is due to return to our screens in late October. READ MORE: Got Questions About How This Year's Strictly Will Work?

Boris Johnson helped sow the discord that's making it hard for him to govern | Rafael Behr
A tide of disinformation flows through the cracks in British democracy and the prime minister is hopelessly unqualified to fight backCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageTo find the fault lines in society, follow the bots. Fake social media accounts crawl all over the issues that divide us, spreading lies and confusion. For every human being with a genuine grievance on Twitter and Facebook, there is an army of automated outrage amplifiers. For or against, left or right, it doesn’t matter when the goal is maximum polarisation. The bots identify the material that triggers the most passionate reactions and spread it to the widest audience.Before scientists had pinned down vital facts about Covid-19, the internet was crawling with lurid conspiracy theories. One US study looked at 200m tweets discussing the coronavirus, and found that about 45% of comments came from mechanised accounts. Of the top 50 tweeters found to have the most network influence in the study, 42 were fake. Other social media platforms are similarly infested. Continue reading...
